HP 393 - Biomechanics


Credits: 3

This is an introductory course that examines the mechanical properties and behavior of biological tissues and systems. Topics include stress/strain, torsion, bending/buckling, shear, and equilibrium. Biomaterials such as collagen and elastin are investigated, as are the tissue structures they make up. Rigid body mechanics are introduced.

Prerequisites: HP 390
